From the time Big Brother was born to this very day, Big Brother has been infatuated with great big trucks. He got his first truck when he was not quite 2 years old. He picked out an awesome red monster truck that made lots of engine revving noises when he pushed it around. He LOVED that truck. He had a complete meltdown when we took it from him so the cashier could ring it up, because I guess he thought he wasn't going to get it back. His collection of trucks grew quickly as grandmas and friends learned fo his obsession.
Because I am a Boymom, I quickly found myself immersed in his world, checking out library books and finding videos that helped him learn everything there was to know about Monster Trucks. Grave Digger and Big Foot were his two favorites, but we never got to a Monster Truck show to let him see them in action.
So he was very excited to learn last week that, courtesy of Feld Entertainment, we will be attending the Advance Auto Parts Monster Truck Jam in March! In fact, his exact words were "Sweet, Mom!" And as it happens, this is the 30th Anniversary of Grave Digger, so it will be fun for our family to help one of our favorite trucks celebrate its big birthday this year.
In addition to the Grave Digger Anniversary events, 2 more trucks have been added to the show, bringing the total from the usual 6 to 8 this year. Favorites like Batman, Maverick and Monster Mutt will be there to compete in Wheelie, Racing and Freestyle events that are sure to bring roars of appreciation from Idaho Monster Jam fans!
The Advance Auto Parts Monster Truck Jam will take place at the Idaho Center in Nampa on March 16th and 17th, 2012. The Friday night show starts at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday hosts 2 shows: a 2 p.m. matinee and a final 7:30 evening show. Fans who plan on attending the Saturday matinee show can purchase Pit Party tickets along with their show tickets, which will give them access to a pre-show event where they can meet drivers and see the trucks up close!
Tickets for the Advance Auto Parts Monster Truck Jam are on sale now and you can save money by buying early. Don't forget to check out the Super Value prices, which offer $5 kids seats in certain sections. Click here for more info and ticket purchases.
We'll be there, cheering and yelling over the roar of the engines! I'll post the pics after the show!
